ZUR BEDEUTUNG DES KNOTENAUSBAUS

Large towns and urban sprawl areas can only exist as viable social units if they have a well organised transport system.

The railways are therefore putting an enormous amount of effort into developing railway interconnections. However owing to the considerable cost involved this work can only be undertaken in stages.
